Mark Your Calendars...

crisper has come up with this idea...

Mark your calendars: January 27th is Rabbit Hole Day
A few months ago, I had a dream in which LiveJournal and everyone on it went completely nuts for a day. The entire world had turned upside-down and inside-out and nobody was their normal self anymore. And it was such a good read, that I think it should happen for real.

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carrol, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore. I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics. Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?

Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.

Management consultant William Fried told eighth-graders at Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School on Tuesday that stripping and exotic dancing can pay $250,000 or more per year, depending on their bust size.

Well, if bust size determines annual income, I could have been making lots more money all these years. And I would have been able to take advantage of all that earning potential beginning at age twelve! Unfortunately, I was not given this valuable advice during my middle school years and pursued other less lucrative opportunities.

"That stripping advice wasn't the only thing that riled parents. Di Salvo said one mother was outraged when her son announced that he was forgoing college for a field he loves: fishing."

The state of Mississippi
is celebrating more than the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. today. Robert E. Lee's birthday is being celebrated today as well. And I am not the least bit surprised that Robert E. Lee is mentioned first in the proclamation.

I am so glad I don't live there anymore.
